Wayne made his 100th England appearance on Saturday against Slovenia at Wembley. The England captain led the team out with his sons, Kai and Klay, before being presented with a golden cap by Sir Bobby Charlton to commemorate his special achievement.
Underdogs Slovenia threatened to spoil the celebrations after they took the lead through an own goal just before the hour mark. England quickly responded after Wayne was brought down in the box and was awarded a penalty, he smashed it home to score his 44th goal for his country putting him joint-third with Jimmy Greaves in the all-time standings. With Slovenia’s resistance broken, Danny Welbeck struck twice to seal the three points and maintain England’s 100% record in Euro 2016 Group E qualification.
The Manchester United striker, now only five goals behind Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time England scoring record, said on his official Facebook page: ‘Great to win today and proud to have reached 100 caps for England. It was amazing to walk out with my sons and something I won’t ever forget. Thanks to the fans for their support today and over the last 100 games!’
Wayne still has plenty more games to come, speaking to his official website he said: ‘I will carry on for as long as i’m picked by the manager. I feel I’ve got a lot left to give in an England shirt, my main aim is to win something with England and hopefully we can do that.’
